Luke Gottwald has issued a statement denying reports that Sony Music was planning to terminate the contract with the music producer over allegations of sexual harassmant made by Kesha.
Earlier, The Wrap had exclusively reporte that Sony music would end the contract with Dr Luke following the sexual abuse case filed by Tick-Tock singer Kesha, which attracted lot of negative publicity for the company.
"This is not true. Luke has an excellent relationship with Sony. His representatives are in regular contact with executives at the highest levels at Sony and this has never come up," a representative of the r Luke said, according to The Wrap.
The 29-year-old singer filed a sexual harassment suit against Lukasz "Dr. Luke" Gottwald in 2014 and requested to set her free from the contract with Dr Luke's Kemosable records and Sony Music. However, the New York State Supreme court ruled against Kesha's request for 'temporary Injunction' due to lack of evidence in support of the abuse, in February 2016.
Despite the court's decision, the whole incident has come out as a nightmare for Sony Music with big influential names like Adele, Lady Gaga and Kelly Clarkson coming out in support for the American singer, an insider told Thewrap,
"There is no contest. Kesha has no case in regards to her contract but they can't afford the Adeles of the world out in the streets calling the label unsupportive. The fact that this hasn't already been taken care of with Luke is confusing, especially for people in the building."
Sony Music spokesperson has declined to comment on the insider's report on ending their contract with American producer, which is deemed to expire in early 2017.
After the news of Sony Music's decision to end Dr Luke's contract flashed on internet, Lady Gaga took to Twitter thanking and suggesting Sony Music 'to do what is right'.
